Notes from the Underground


Published October 19, 2005


LibriVox recording of Notes from the Underground, by Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
Read by Librivox volunteers.

Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s short masterpiece about a ranting, slightly mad civil servant. The stylistic inventiveness, and the insights into the absurdities and weakness of humans seem so fresh and incisive today that if published now (a century and a half later) Notes would be considered an avant-garde post-modernist triumph. In some ways this is a heavy text, laden with conversational philosophizing; but the vividness of the narrator make it a wonderful read, and funny.
(Review by Hugh McGuire)

Subject: Great novel
This single novel is probably the best piece i have ever read. The writter really touched on issues of a everyday life. Another novel by Mario Puzo 'The Godfather'together with Fyodors 'Notes from Undergrond' will probably blow your mind if you let your mind wonder deep into the Underground of Politics. The Communist Manifesto, by Karl Marx probably another piece i suggest for reading.

I quote 'That is how governments are run today, do not ignore the guys who explored it in the past two centuries'
